Derby County v Nottingham Forest Predictions


Derby County v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips Explained


Derby County return to league action following the international break when they host Nottingham Forest this weekend and following three successive draws, they'll be desperate to get back on the winning track and to put their inconsistent start to the 2017/18 campaign firmly behind them.

Stalemates against Birmingham City (1-1), Brentford (1-1) and Cardiff City (0-0) prior to the break have left the Rams sitting down in 15th in the table on 13 points, 11 behind leaders Cardiff heading into this round of fixtures. They do boast a game in hand on the top six, though, and can take confidence from the fact that they took a point home from Cardiff in their last outing and managed to keep their hosts scoreless. And that is something County manager Gary Rowett has tried to emphasise in the build up to Sunday's clash

"Our home form has been excellent but it’s not been the same on our travels. I know it is a bit of a cliché, but I felt we turned a bit of a corner in terms of our performances at Brentford and Cardiff," he told RamsTV.

“It was important we got something from those games. We were five minutes away from winning at Brentford, whether it was deserved or not, and a fantastic defensive performance.

“At Cardiff we thought the overall performance was excellent and we could have won it in the last 20 minutes as well. We can’t quite find those wins just yet but I think it was a positive week."

Forest are two points and two places above County in the standings but have also endured a stop-start campaign to date. The Reds' only back-to-back wins in the Championship came on Matchdays 1 & 2 and though they registered a 2-1 win at home to high-flying Sheffield United last time out, they had lost four on the bounce in all competitions prior to that result.

Two of the Tricky Trees five league wins have come on the road - against Brentford and Sunderland - but it has been a case of win or bust to date for Mark Warburton's side as they've lost all six of their other Championship fixtures. 

Forest welcome back Matt Mills from suspension, while David Vaughan, Matty Cash and Jamie Ward are all pushing for a return to the squad following injury. The visitors haven't won at Pride Park since 2015, however, and we're backing the Rams to make them wait a while longer for that honour. And given the low scoring nature of Derby's recent outings, we'll take Derby/Under 3.5 goals to boot.
